Re: Traveler Locations
The traveller on my boat (Cal 2-27) is also on the bridge deck. It is kind of a PITA at times, as it gets in the way. But, if one isn't tacking back and forth too much it tends not to be too big a deal (I certainly wouldn't consider it "downright DANGEROUS"). The big plus is that such a location is very handy for the helmsman on a tiller-steered boat, particularly when sailing singlehanded. I wonder if the boat in the post at the top of this thread was originally designed to be fitted with a tiller rather than a wheel.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
